Seeds of Perpetual Conflict: British Mandate for Palestine and Birth of Israel

The Near East has endured eight wars since the State of Israel was recognized by the U.N. in 1947. This protracted and seemingly perpetual conflict between Israel, the Arab people of Palestine, and the Arab nations in the Near East has evaded all attempts at resolution. A part of this controversy that is sometimes forgotten arose between 1922 and 1948 when Britain ruled Palestine under a mandate from the League of Nations. We will explore the British Mandate, the roots of the current political strife, and possible ways to move forward in the direction of a better future.
